As reported by several media outlets, on Wednesday, October 25, an illegal teenage invader was permitted to have an abortion here in Texas after an accelerated court battle. Not unusual, in court documents the pregnant teen was identified as “Jane Doe”.
Jane Doe. It’s a name that is intended to offer anonymity, but has led to the discovery that State Rep. Eddie Lucio, III (D-Brownsville RER17) is making a good living sheltering Jane Doe’s.
Here’s the kicker. It’s all government money.
Yvonne Larsen of RER content partner LittleJollyPolitics.com, noticed the story of “Jane Doe” posted on RER in the midst of the frenzied court battle. Being one of the best citizen journalist in the state, Larsen decided to do some follow through based on a story posted on the left-leaning Texas Observer.
In the RERhotclip, Apostle Claver Kamau-Imani’s interview with Larson resulted in publicizing some amazing facts about the Lucio enterprise, and how it’s all funded through government grants.
“This pertains to the merging issues around illegal immigration, the Texas refugee industry, and the potential for taxpayer facilitation and funding of abortions requested by illegal aliens, in the custody of Texas’ refugee industry,” said Larsen.
Larsen’s inspiration and momentum to dig further came from previously-unknown facts published in the story by the Texas Observer. The story names the company that operates the shelter where the then-pregnant teenage illegal invader was residing. The name of the company? Caring for Jane Doe.
International Education Services (IES) is a company based out of Los Fresnos, Texas, in the Brownsville area. IES runs the shelters known as Caring for Jane Doe.
State Rep. Eddie Lucio, III is identified as merely the paid legal counsel in the Texas Observer story. However, through financial disclosure statements required of state officeholders, Lucio is listed as Vice President of External Affairs and Legal Counsel for IES. He’s an actual corporate officer of International Education Services.
Publically available Internal Revenue Service records retrieved by Larsen from 2014 went even further. They show that Lucio, III is actually a Director of IES — more than just an executive office and legal counsel. However, the IES website doesn’t list Lucio, III as a Director.
In 2014, Lucio earned just over $139,000 in total taxpayer-funded compensation through his positions at International Education Services.
As submitted by IES on their IRS Form 990, the nonprofit received $57.8 million dollars in government grants reported as revenue. The totality of the revenue for International Education Services is taxpayer-funded, government grants. IES is organized as a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt entity.
Speaking to her motivation and the thrust of her citizen journalism, Larsen said, “Whenever I see these nonprofits getting government grants, taxpayer money… what’s number one, how much? So, for that year, $57.8 million dollars. And, then what compensation was going to these officers, directors, key trustees?’
Larsen revealed what her research uncovered when it comes to personal enrichment. “The President of International Education Services, for 2014, received total compensation of over $675,000 dollars. That individual’s son, who serves as the Chief Operating Officer, for that same tax year, over $675,000 dollars in compensation. The CFO, almost $550,000 dollars.
“So, the story I wrote was ‘$57 Million Reason Taxpayer Funded Reasons Why This Entity is Shelter Jane Doe’”.
Larsen found another story on the Texas Observer website about the Lucio family posted in 2010. State Sen. Eddie Lucio, Jr. (D-Brownsville RER43) and State Rep. Lucio, III have interests in the private prison consulting industry.
The mission statement for International Education Services as on file with the IRS:
“To provide the physical and educational care needed by the unaccompanied minor alien children who are entrusted to our care by the immigration officials who have detained them”.
After Larsen shared the mission statement of IES, Apostle Claver Kamau-Imani made this observation during their conversation, “They literally state in the mission statement that they’re here to assist the illegal invaders. And, they get their tax-exempt status. And, then, on top of that, they’re fully funded by federal grants to the tune of $57 million dollars.”
Apostle Claver said, “This dude (the CEO of IES) is making $600,000 a year helping illegal invaders and people are wondering why the borders are open? And, the U.S. Government is paying for it!”
Their 2014 IRS Form 990 indicates that IES received $50.00 from “other contributions”.
On their website, IES lists shelters being located in Brownsville, Los Fresnos, San Benito, Harlingen, Weslaco, and Driscoll.
